    Hello Ms Hay

    I am attempting to get my first freelance gig as a script reader. I have a BA in English Literature, but no previous experience or formal qualifications for Screenwriting.

    I wanted to ask, what would a potential employer look for, in my pitch to be a script reader for them, that would be more likely to result in a positive response?

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Any advice would be greatly

      Hi there, this deserved a post of its own, so I wrote a reply to you and other interested parties here: n Best of luck!

    I have just written a series of six short illustrated children’s books
    What do I do next
    Who do I approach to get them published
    And do I need some form of representation?

    • Lucy V Hay says:

      Hi Maxine, children’s books (illustrated or otherwise) are not my forte I’m afraid. Why not check out sites like Book Viral, Bubblecow and The Creative Penn for more on publishing? Google to find them. As for agents, check out my posts on the matter or Twitter – lots of agents give great advice with the hashtags #subtip and #askagent. Good luck!
